New Vortex Viper PST Gen II Riflescopes

    The head image is the current Vortex 1-6×24 (Razor HD Gen II) at work with the Top Gun Rifle Team for IPSC Rifle. The pictures is actually taken just a week ago, during testing of the new HERA Magazines.

    The Vortex Viper PST 1–6×24 is, according to Vortex, the best selling tactical riflescope on the market. The Second Generation will be available in Spring 2017, and has been re-designed both internally and externally.




    1-6×24: Now even more versatile, the new PST Gen II 1-6×24 picks up right where the venerable 1-4x left off. With a true 1x on its low end and a monstrous eyebox for close-quarters, rapid acquisition, shooters can easily engage targets in the tightest of scenarios. On the high end of its zoom spectrum, an even more versatile 6x facilitates accurate mid to long-range engagements. A side illumination adjustment, coupled with low-drag capped turrets make for a sleek and streamlined profile. Inside, the same VMR-2 reticle from the Razor Gen II 1-6, with its daylight-bright center illuminated dot, is standard and available in MOA or MRAD.


    For Long Range shooters and Hunters these models are available:

    2-10×32, 3-15×44 and 5-25×50: Meet your new group of long-range workhorses. Whether you’re topping off a DMR-type build or a PRS rig you’ll be pushing to the limits, there is an option just for you. Tall, tactical turrets and a side focus parallax adjustment with integrated illumination help dial in your shots for ultimate precision.  Each model features the patented RZR Zero Stop, taken from our proven Razor HD 5-20×50 riflescope, to ensure you have an accurate and reliable return-to-zero – every time. Reticles include our New EBR-4 and EBR-2C. Available in MOA or MRAD to match your turrets. First Focal Plane reticles are available on select models.
